Academic Research into Co-Working

I'm working on some background research into co-working, and was
wondering if anyone is aware of any academic studies of co-working
spaces. Since co-working is a relatively new phenomenon, I'm not sure
if the academic world has caught up with the real world, but I'm
curious.

There have been many actually, though by nature they’re not necessary easily discovered by the public.

I can try to send you (or anyone else) the one or two I have in my possession if you like; I don’t know if they’re supposed to be shared publicly but I don’t see a problem sending them along.

We’ve had 2 research projects conducted here.

One is a grad level thesis on collaborative environments. It was produced by 2 students who worked from Indy Hall part time (paid for by the university), and there’s much broader research than just coworking/Indy hall included. One of those two students returned last week to begin work for a remote employer at Indy Hall.

The other is a much smaller project, but still has some potent contents:

We’ve been cited in a few others, but like Tony said, I don’t have explicit permission to share them.

Thanks for yor input....id love to see what you have. Have they been
published in peer reviewed journals or at refereed conferences? Those
processes usually cause a 1-2 year lag from the popularity of a
technology to actual research publication. Oh well, that is the
contemplative academic process, i guess.
